Is It Going To Snow?

Judy and I have fallen back into a regular exchange of emails. I didn't think we would. But we have several shared interests. I don't suppose I have anyone else in my life with whom I can discuss Ezra Pound...

I read a couple of the Cantos the other day. Pound burbles, but burbles beautifully. He was so gifted- and yet he spent most of his life cobbling together a disjointed poem about economics that can only be understood with footnotes.

I thought I'd miss crosswords- and I don't. Instead of picking up the newspaper after lunch and folding it into a tabloid with the crossword uppermost, I fold my arms and go to sleep.

Joe Biden is getting a lot of credit right now for not being Donald Trump but not being Donald Trump is the easy bit...

It's snowing in London, but will it snow here? The conditions are right- and there was a sleety episode a few minutes ago...
